SOME HIGH PRAISE
Au st ralia Lauds A mcrican
La-ii-n Tennis Players.
Melville 11. Long and Maurice E. Mc
l.ouyhUn. who faikd in their quest for the
I iwight F. Davis international lawn tennis
trophy in far off Australia last December,
brought back »otna newspaper clippings on
their return to this country some days ago,
whii-h ure interesting in view of the fact
:hat the news of the matches by cable
were rather meagre at the time.
Long and McLoughlin, who represented
the United States, were beaten in all live
matches by Norman E. Brooks and An
thony F. Wilding, but they made a good
fight and their play aroused much favor
abie criticism. "The Melbourne Argus" in
one of its reports said:
"Four thousand persons turned out for
the match, including Dr. Eaves, the famous
British player, and the great crowd was
keenly interested throughout, generous in
applause and absolutely impartial.
"The doubles was the finest exhibition
ever witnessed in Australia.. The defend
ers won in straight sets, but that was no
erit<_ j ri<'n of the merits of the play, which
was as even as it well could be. The
AmerioHns played with great determina
tion and Long especially excelled himself.
He showed excellent judgment, making lobs
and drives with discrimination and volley
ing well, either high or low."
Another criticism of the American play
ers wes as follows:
"Considering how young the Americans
arc, it speaks volumes for their pluck and
determination that they made such a glori
ous show. After all, their experience in
great matchtK has U-en very limited, and
considering that most of their play has
been learned on asphalt, their showing
against two such old experienced generals
as Brooks and Wilding on the grass has
been wonderfully good. After their display
in the singles no one would have been a
bit surprised had they gone down in the
doubles without a struggle. However, their
feubseo.i,-<=-nt rtrong opposition surprised ti:<-ir
opponents considerably. Mclaughlin's ser
vice v.-.-lk a t-Trat factor in their game, and
to Jo him credit it must be said in this
department very few can give him a point.
(Hc:d his partner been of the same calibre
as him.self the condition of things might
have b-.-t-n reversed."

Columbia's defensive work was superior

on the attack that the players failed to get

It was the fourth consecutive victory for
Princeton. But the showing of the colle
gians from New Jersey against Columbia,
whom they were regarded as sure to smoth

be the outcome when Yale's team takes the
field, for Princeton last night in nowise
came up to the form that had been looked
It was rough and tumble hockey right
from the start. Cassidy, burly of frame
and with a huge hat, the visor of which
protected his eyeglasses, was a host in him
self as he checked and followr-d the elusive
puck. He sent it into Princeton's territory
at the beginning, and he materially aided
in keeping it there. Cassidy could not skate
much, but he interrupted a lot as he forged
into the Princeton attack and broke up
their line formations.
When the scrimmaging had lasted for
fifteen minutes without a tally, Columbia's
contingent gave vent to a mighty cheer.
It was so Inspiring that Murchie was again
guilty of offside checking. While he was
off the ice Kay got the rubber on a pass
out near the Princeton goal. He rushed it
down the field alone, dodging Love joy and
Harding, and landed it inside the rage by
a high lifting shot within two minutes of
the end of the half.
The second half was begun at lesser
speed than the first. Gradually Columbia
attained a lively gait, Cassidy giving Hard
ing and Lovejoy fine chances, without
avail. Whenever either made a good shot
Captain Peacock stopped the rubber short
of the cage. Read worked splendidly in
this half, but he could not score for his
team. Once he prevented Columbia from
scoring by an offside play at the cage,
for which Referee Russell retired him for
two minutes. The scrimmages were hotly
fought at the close, and so the match enued

first meet for the Intercollegiate swimming
championship by defeating Princeton here
to-night with the score of 27^ to 2f.'-.. INI
until the last second of the last event could
Yale claim the advantage in the swimming
meet, but the visitors had little difficulty
in winning the water polo game by the
score of 10 to 6.
The times made were all fast, the time
for the relay race coming within one-fifth
of a second of the record. l*p tn the Mf
yard swim the Tigers held what looked to
be a safe lead, but in this event the Blue
captured both first and second places, thus
gaining a lead of two points. Gosnell, of
Princeton, was only a foot behind Home
in this event.
The work of Stoddard for Yale was the
feature of the evening. He swam in the
relay race, was entered In the fancy diving
and won the 220-yard and 100-yard swims,
which gave Yale the meet.
An opportunity of seeing a water polo
game under the new rules was afforded for
the first time. Yale stuck more to the old
style of play and scored one goal by touch
ing the ball in' each half. Princeton, on the
other hand, played more of an open game
and scored three goals by throwing the ball
for a total of 6 points.

NEW HURDLE RECORD.
y Lbvett Makes Nay Mark for an
Odd Distance. . .....
I. J. Lovell, of the Irish-American Ath
letic Club, established a new world's record
for the 73-yard low hurdles at the annual
meet of the Sunday School Athletic League
in the 14th Regiment armory, Brooklyn,

the former mark, made by H. H. Baxter

Lovell was opposed by W. A. Raleigh and
H. Kerrigan. Lovell won rather easily, five
yards separating him from Raleigh, who
was second. Four of the official timers
caught the winner in 9 4-5 seconds, while
another caught him at 10 seconds.

The annual meeting of the Crescent Ath

house. Clinton and Pierrepont streets,
Brooklyn, attracted a great throng of mem
bers. It was. in fact, an Important night In
the club's annals, for. besides the election
or a new board of governors, there was
considerable discussion for and against the
amendment to the bylaws recommended for
adoption at the last meeting of the board
<* governors whereby an "athletic class" of
L* members would be created.
Speaking of the amendment. ex-President
<~ X. Bull said: "This is not merely to
secure material for the teams, but to enable
athletic young men who are acceptable to
the membership and athletic committees, to
enjoy the athletic departments of the club,

during the spring training trips In ♦&»
South, hut. so far as trading or buying vet
♦•ran players la concerned, there has b«en : '
mighty little to keep the "fans" interested, *
The reason for this lies In the fact that
every manager is trying to strengthen his
club, ano consequently hangs on like grim*
death to his stars or would-be stars.

Yankees, was quite active for a time, 1-4
not only sold Kid Elberfeld to Washington,

change of pitchers which aroused more
than passing interest, but otherwise little,
has been accomplished, and It begins ta>

John J. Mr raw, manager of the New
York Giants, has been working diligently
to get three or four players, and money
has been no object, but the other clubs are
afraid of New York and up to now no in
ducements have served the purpose Tie
"fans" believe that the Giants need &
catcher to help Schley and Meyers out. at
least one new pitcher who can take his
turn with llathewson. Wilts* and Ames,
and one or two hard hitting outfielders,,
but. as McGraw says, the trouble is to get
them. The Giants can go along pretty •well
as they are. but the "little manager" is
not sitting back and -waiting with this Idea,
but is still working hard in his quiet way
to accomplish his purpose.
T'p to date Charley Comiskey has pan
out m<ir»» r..>>ri3y for new playe--i :.-.aa aay
other club owner. Russell Blackburn may
be called the prize beauty so far, aa he %
said to have cost Mr. Comiskey X.m, la
addition to two players worth be:w*«a
$3.wu and $4,000. Blackburn played shsnV
stop T\ith the Providence team I •-»
Eastern League last year, and made a
good impression. It Is said that Mr.
Comiskey also paid the Providence teas
something like $10,000 for Hugh Mfc t»
manage the White sox. while the owner ef
the Chicago Americans la credited wlta
paying 1^.500 for Rollie Zelder. a tMrt
baseman from the Ban Francisco lob el
the Pacific Coast League.
Frank Farrell, owner of the Yankenv
paid the next highest price when he gave
$4,000 for Otis Johnson, a third baseman
from the Portland Club of the PactSc
Coast League. The Cleveland Club U aiso
said to have paid about the sam~ pr.ee for
thrte players, Unke. Gregg and Koestner.
Some of the Giants will make an early
start for the training camp at Marlla
Springs, Tex. The new men who live east
of Pittsburg have been notified to report

August Belmonfs Fair Play, the best sea
of Hastings, in the opinion of many race
goers, has been returned to the Nursery
Farm in Fayette County. Ky., and wfil
stand next season at a $250 fee. Fair
Play was a better horse than King Jair.es
as a three-year-old in 1908. and was ranked
third only to Celt and the mighty Colin,
which he ran to a neck in the Belmont
Stakes through a driving storm. That race
was not a fair measure of the ability of tUe
two horses, as Nottsr cased Colin up toe
soon, but Fair Play was a good horse, as
he proved by winning a number of rh%
stakes " ■ strong fields. Last year Fair
Play was shipped to England, but under
new surroundings and conditions he de
veloped a wilful temper and failed to tV
up to his form in this country. As a *-*•
and three year old hera he won $&5,!H0. and
would have joined the Mitel band °f *
winners of $100,000 if he had remained in
the United States last season.
